So Bobby Andresen, of PixelImplosion was kind enough to convince me to start twitterring. I can feel it’s addictive pull, but I’m most interested in exploring it to see how its culture & form shape the communications.
That is, I’m no stranger to reaching out randomly via commenting in forums, Facebook messages to ‘strangers’. I’ve developed a sense of what those activities can and can’t accomplish. (For instance, being convinced to use Twitter!)
Twitter is a different beast. In twelve hours of use it’s sparked a few conversations for me. We’ll see what it does once I build up critical 'mass’ of twittering contacts, and get a better feel for the etiquette.
As soon as I figure out how, I’ll adjust my tumblr theme to incorporate my status.
